6 Bangalore Food Trails, With Google Maps
Gastronomic excursions in Bangalore do not have to be limited to pubs and microbreweries. One may not imagine but the garden city has quite a variety to offer, a lot has to do with Bangalore’s colonial heritage and the fact that it is the IT hub for the country attracting expatriates from all corners of the world.
Here is a look at Bangalore’s 6 culinary trails which offers a curious new way to explore the city.
If you are in Bangalore and have not visited at least one of the famous tiffin rooms it is pretty shameful. These tiffin rooms and snacks centers are known for their machine like efficiency serving multitudes of hungry patrons with crisp dosas, vadas and filter coffee. The food maybe similar but it is the subtle difference in tastes from one restaurant to other which is the highlight, not to mention the entire experience.
Bangalore’s near perfect weather made the British make a beeline for the city to settle down. With them came their version of posh nosh. You can still try some of time tested dishes like liver on toast, pies, rolls and the hearty English breakfast at these restaurants. There is also an extensive range of local dishes.
It is a wonder why the trend of food trucks never picked up in India before this. Now that it has, it is again Bangalore which has taken the lead to make it a happening food trend. Try some of the brilliant barbecue meats and deli-style sandwiches at these food trucks.
While most of us are still trying to wrap our heads around Oriental cuisines in general, Bangalore has gone a step ahead with dedicated Korean restaurants. You can thank Korean expats craving for home style food, and allowing you the chance to try out staples like Bibimbap and Bulgogi.
Did you know Bangalore once had a flourishing Parsi community? Unfortunately, not many thought of going into the food business and making Parsi bhonu available to the masses. That has changed now with the likes of SodaBottleOpenerWala opening up in the city. You can now try favorites like Salli Boti and Dhansak.
The best way to enjoy Bangalore’s nightlife (however little of it is on offer) are the rooftop bars. Pleasant, breezy and overlooking the sprawling city an evening spent at these restaurants and bars is a must-do activity in Bangalore according to us.
